Hey, can anyone out there please help me I would like to use some katakana in my site and drawings but I am not sure which symbols correlate to which letters. If anyone can help me out or point me to a link that would be great :D

I just did a search for a katakana chart and came up with plenty of links, finding a good chart should be no problem... http://hem.passagen.se/bomark/japanska/katakana.html looks pretty good to me. There's also a few rules you should know if you're going to converting English into katakana, like a small tsu character doubles the next consonant sound, and use a dash to double the preceding vowel sound. (Maybe you already know this, I'm just trying to be helpful with what little knowledge I actually have :D ) Can't think of any other ones right now.

hey thank you!!! I will give that a shot. Plus thanks for the info, I wish that I had time to take some japanese courses, all of my time was spent on sign language instead :)

Wow, great link, GOTL.
I've seen Katakana charts before, bu tthis is the first I've seen which shows you stroke order. Very nice.
http://www.japanese-online.com/ is also a pretty good resource for learning Japanese in general, as well as the written language (Lesson 6, I believe)
